cannot "wander" outside /home (or a specified directory). I have
"googled" around and found various papers on chrooting one user, or ftp
access, etc., but haven't found an easy way to create and administer
50-80 users in a chrooted environment.
I plan to couple the chroot environment with Kiosk profiles to assign
different capabilities to groups of users.
I'll let you know if everything is going OK :-)
i'm sure that a modified
netboot client could be written, but the resources
are a little thin right now. but I think it's a valuable idea and after we
finish the ltsp stuff , I'll ask that we look at that. then you can take the
hot seat lol
On a related topic. Could it be possible to "strip down" the start up
system to contain only the necessary files to boot a NX client and
connect to a NX server? I am playing with the free NX server in OpenSUSE
and the results in network speed and system responsiveness on various
linux clients are absolutely impressive.
¿Any hint out there?
